Categories: Latin America, El Salvador, Environment, Human Rights, War & Conflict

Voices from El Salvador [1] reports on a new attack against anti mining activists in Cabañas. This time, Father Neftalí Ruiz was attacked by “several young men [who] tied him up in his home and proceeded to search his home, computer files, and cellphones for information and supposed weapons.” Grit and Grace [2] published an English translation of a press release by the National Working Table against Metallic Mining in El Salvador on this attack.
